Introduction to Antipodean Health Geographies

Suzanne Mavoa, Lukar Thornton, Neil Coffee

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


    Health geography is a sub‐discipline of geography that combines geographers' inherent interest in place and how place influences human health. Health geography also draws on a long history of studies that have examined people, place, and health, including early works such as the 1792 map of human diseases produced by Finke, the early nineteenth century work by Louis‐Rene Villerme on mortality in Paris, the work of John Snow on the cholera outbreak in London in 1858, and Charles Booth's poverty maps of London (1886–1903).
